Having been empty nested for 3 years I'm surprised at how difficult it is to accomodate our daughter who moved back for a couple of weeks during an apartment transition. All of a sudden we are more accountable and she is less. The fact that she just turned 21 has afforded her mor freedom as she is now a fully "legal" adult and any hold that we had on her has evidently melted away. Of course the age old reminder that you're still our child has little effect, luckily we raised a respectful if not somewhat headstrong girl. She works 2 jobs, babysits frequently, carries a full schedule of classes and made the Deans List so I'm not really complaining. I think 2 weeks is survivable and then we share what may be our last family vacation together there we"ll find out what 2 weeks in a car can do to togetherness, I'm sure once that's done her new apartment will become her sanctuary.
